Just completed the redesign for West Highland Sailing and put it live. If any eagle-eyed browsers spot any typos or layout problems please let me know. (IE6 users don't bother . . . )

Bottom of opening page:
members of Her Majestys Forces and ther families

Missing apostrophe in "Majesty's", "their" misspelled and missing full stop at the end.

(How dull my life must be when proof-reading seems a pleasant diversion.)

On the lochness.html page:
There is also a jetty for cruisers at Uruqhart Castle (no overnight mooring).

Urquhart misspelled.
On the North side of the loch there is a pier at Foyers

Are you sure about the North?

itineraries.html:
look out for the Monster and cruise onto Drumnadrochit

should be on to, not onto.
Moor your boat below Urquart Castle to explore

Urquhart misspelled.
is Inverness, the capital of the Highlands and Britains youngest City

Missing apostrophe in Britain's
using the West Highland Railway line. one of the worlds most scenic rail journeys.
Full stop instead of comma after "Railway line"
by taking a gondola up Anoch Mor

Should be Aonach.
a trip to watch bottle nosed Dolphins

Should be "bottle-nosed" dolphins. There is also an inappropriate initial capital on salmon in the next paragraph.

I am going to stop now before I lose my sanity completely.

Ran out of edit time.

I'm not convinced that clicking
Our Fleet

under
Hiring our boats
leads to the intended page.

On this page http://www.westhighlandsailing.com/booking.html, I like your antispam. I don't like the date selection - how easy is it to get the calendar facility like on this page http://www.premierinn.com/en/home.action?CMP=KNC_Ga

On the introduction page, where it reads "Starting your cruise at the base at Laggan Locks" surely it should be "Starting your cruise at OUR base at Laggan Locks"

Calling it a day now, will look through the rest tomorrow.

Changed. Thanks for that. I must say it is very handy having a team of proofreaders available :mrgreen: - some of these errors have actually been up (on the old site) for years, but most are in the new bits.

It did say Anoch, you have changed it to Aonoch, it should be Aonach. (The Mor is right, though.)

You can tell I am bored out here....

Loch Ness Introduction page, paragraph 2 needs a comma after action "Loch Ness Project in action"

Charts of the canal - this is most confusing. Layout of charts at bottom of page have North up as you would expect. Actual maps when opened have North DOWN - contrary to all normal practice. If they cannot be changed, a warning should be posted.

On the links page: When the photographs stop, the links below that are set too far to the left and are actually off the clear white bit (if that makes sense)

Otherwise all looks good!
